MOUNT WACHUSETT COMMUNITY COLLEGE 444 GREEN STREET GARDNER, MA 01440 STEPPING IN TO A WORLD OF LEARNING WALK ALONG A PATH OF KNOWLEDGE STEPPING OUT TO A WORLD OF EXPERIENCE dp £W ■ FALL ORIENTATION Life has often been likened to a road which we travel of a race we run. On the way through it we go up and down hills, through valleys, over barriers and hopefully we reach some high points during our journey from which we can marvel at our accomplishments. Our time at Mount Wachusett Community College is a small part of our trips but it is an important part because it is here that we decide the course of our lives. Whether it is decisions about work, travel or lifestyle, they are all detours and turns on our road to the future. As we are faced with these choices we can also feel the urge to put on someone else's SHOES and follow the FOOT- STEPS of those before us in our search for happiness. There are many pairs of shoes, well and broken in for us to try on — those of teachers, friends and celebri- ties — and while it might be easier to wear someone else's SHOES who has walked before us and suceeded, it is also important to put on our SHOES and cre- ate new roads to follow. So, while we can follow someone else's FOOTSTEPS, it is also important to make our own to achieve happiness. - SHOES. Everybody wears them. In the be- ginning of time they were just a covering to keep feet protected from weather condi- tions. Through time shoes have become more than that. They have emerged as a fashion accesory and a clue to a person's personality. It is true that you cannot put the same SHOE on every foot. Through the halls of the Mount, varieties of SHOES can be seen. They range from high fashion pumps to old torn sneakers. Looking under the desks of busy students, one can see all types of styles ----- sneakers, sandals, mocassions, boots, loaf- ers, clogs, work boots, short boots, high heels, buttoned, buckled, tied, and flourescent colored . . . the possibilities are endless. SHOES are an extension of our personal- ities. A persons SHOES tell us whether they would rather be fashionable or com- fortable. People may own a few pairs or may own many pairs of SHOES. Shoes can make or break an outfit. It all depends on how you wear them. Certainly, the va- riety of SHOES at the Mount had made walking through the corriders just a little more interesting. Clockwise from below: Juan Carlos Gaitan and sister Marcella Gaitan. "Little sister takes care of big brother." Norma Gates and sons David and Robert. "A rose between two thorns." Robyn Cossette and her mother Marie DiMarzo. "Will I ever get rid of her?" Irene Pervier and daughter Angela. "We're not just family, we're best friends." "Families 'Steppin' Out' Together" Educational opportunities have changed the traditional climate of academic institutions as shown by the following examples of a new student clientele. Clockwise from below: Ellen Deckard and her sister Karen Goldthwaite. "Two of a kind." Kevin Dech and his mother Geraldine. "Big Chief," and "Little Mom." Dean Crowley and sister Kathleen "We're always there for each other forever." Chuck Swanson and wife Sherrie. "Good to have something in common." 11 Two prominent actors died in late 1985: Orson Wells, 70, of a heart attack; Rock Hudson, 59, after a battle with AIDS. A delta Airlines jetliner crashed near Dallas in August, killing 137 people. The plane was on a flight from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Los Angeles with an intermediate stop at Dallas-Fort Worth. Thirty-four people survived the crash but five died of injuries later. The plane encountered a severe wind shear as it plunged to the ground. Blue-collar troubadour Bruce Springsteen was the undisputed Boss of rock n' roll. His songs about Vietnam veterans, steelworkers and factory workers hit many responsive chords with all ages of Americans. Ceremonies were held at various times during the year at the Vietnam Memorial in Washington to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the fall of the Saigon government in Vietnam. The Vietnam Memorial is inscribed with the names of more than 58,000 dead or missing soldiers from the Vietnam war. Riots were an almost daily occurence in South Africa as blacks protested Apartheid. In this photo, a white man runs from jeering group of stonethrowing blacks in downtown Johannesburg as windspread violence continued to breakout throughout the country. 14 President Reagan, with his wife Nancy, gives the A- Okay sign from his hospital window in July after undergoing surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his lower intestine. The 74-year old president was back on the job within weeks after the operation. Cincinatti Reds player-manager Peter Rose broke Ty Cobb's career hit record in September. The historic No. 4, 192 hit was a single to left field on a 2-1 pitch from San Diego Padres righ hander Eric Show with one out in the bottom of the first inning.

McAuliffe is a high school teacher from Concord High School in Concord, N.H. Her flight is scheduled for January, 1986. A series of devastating earthquakes rumbled through Mexico City in September and the death toll was in the thousands. Few in the metropolitan area of 18 million escaped the effects of the first quake, which registered 8.1 on the Richter scale; or the second quake, which measured 7.5. A Trans World Airlines jet with 145 passanger and eight crew members was hijacked in Athens, Greece, in June. The Shiete hijackers took the plane to Beirut, then to Algeria and the back to Beirut. Most of the hostages were released within days but the remaining 39 hostages were held for 17 days. One American hostage was killed. 15 Remember Hurrican Gloria?! She stepped in to town the night of our class mixer and postponed the first social event of the semester. One month later, at the Monoos- nock Country Club, on November 1st, we finally got a chance to get our student body together for fun and dancing. The turn out was tremendous. We danced and partied to the tunes of D.J.

Dunton III IT IS WITH GREAT SORROW AND A DEEP SENSE OF LOSS THAT WE MOURN THE PASSING OF THREE MOUNT STUDENTS AND A FORMER FACULTY MEMBER THIS YEAR. THEY WILL BE SAD- LY MISSED. Edwin C. Dunton III graduated in the Spring of 1985. Ed was a member of the Student Senate, serving as President for one year. President of the Ski Club, member of Who's Who in American Junior Colleges. Ed was also co-recipient of the Dean's Keys presented at graduation. Brian Lancaster was a sophmore at MWCC. He was active for three semesters in both the Ski and Scuba clubs. He was a certified life guard and work in that capacity at the Mount. He was elected to the student Senats last spring and played and active role on the 1985 Spree Day Committee. Robert D. Weibell was a second year Art student at the Mount and was a member of the Art Club. Aspasio K. Anastos was a professor in the Humanitities Division at MWCC fro many years and was loved by all. Scholarships have been established as memorials to these fine people: DUNTON-LANCASTER SCHOLARSHIP ROBERT D. WEIBELL MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP ASP ASIA K. ANASTOS MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP Brian Lancaster Robert D. Weibell Aspasio K. Anastos It has been said that death comes like a thief in the night, and that we come into this world with nothing and we leave with nothing. And yet, is it really so? For we leave behind us a legacy of ourselves. We leave to our loved ones, our family and friends, the memories of times gone by, that live like love, forever! We know all to well that once the physical presence of our departed is no longer with us we do not forge them, and that always thoughts come to us and we can and do remember, as sure as we know that spring follows winter. The parting of death is natures greatest show for it seems so final, but once we have walked amongst men and have spoken and laughed, and loved with them, can all the be fogotten in an instant? Not so, for as long as you are alive so does your loved one live within your memory. You need only recall at any time and know and gain from within yourself that inner strength of knowledge, that like this world and all in it, life and death are facts. But are we not by dying truly born again? Words are difficult and cannot express the feelings of separation and loss. But let us take comfort in the thought that our loved ones would not want us to be saddened or be the cause of our grief. Let us therefore hope that they have gone from our presence into a better world not so far away from us. Rev.

January 12-17, forty-one ski club mem- bers, friends and family, rocked the pad in Lincoln, N.H. We have decided to share some memories of the trip with you: Heidi slept late. Rick falls down (in the lift line). The Pats "squish the fish." Friendly N.H. service — just ask Geoff! Dancing age in N.H. is 21!? Geoff eats bark; trees are Hell. Laying out 100 sheets for the pad. Wayne gets sick at Indian Head (on Carol's coat). The BIG "O"!! The famous head butt. "Hey, there is slime in the Jacuzzi." "Cathy, look out for lobster wings!" Rick's surprise birth- day party. The four people pyramid in the pool. Ski "93" mugs .... where did they all go? Twenty-three degrees below zero — brrrrrrrr. "No juice, man." "John, leave those lift towers alone." Warren Miller ski films. Mmmmm — Swiss choc- olate. The lip-sync contest was a success. We all had a blast. Everyone dances to "Shout". Imported Marcela twists her ankle. Boy, no one drank on this trip. Two bells .... we're gone. It's a bummer coming home. For those of you who read this and are totally confused, there's always next trip. Oh yes, one more thing, "Don't forget to tip your bartenders and waitresses." Reprint Harbinger February 14, 1986 52 53 54 55 i i AWESOME BIG O REMEMBER WHEN: SKI CLUB GOES TO QUEBEC Bonjour!

Chairperson Cathy Cormier, who headed the Banquet Committee, spent long, hard hours arranging all the de- tails that ranged form the meal itself to flowers on the head table. Wendy Boucher, Marylou Collins, Lisa Hales, and Dawn Hefflefinger along with Susan Hitchcock-/Gale, Thomas Horgan, Gloria LaBrack Sarah Salter and Carol Seiden- berg assisted Cathy with the tedious details as the eve- ning came across a complete success. Stuffed Boneless Breast of Chicken topped the menu follwed by the ususal pototoe, vegetable, and dinner rolls. It was a great meal, catered by Cormier, but the reason for this festive gather- ing was soon approaching. Shortly after the dessert was served, Jim LeBlanc, the Master of Cermonies, and Rhonda LaPointe, the Mistress of ceremonis, were calling for order as the process of the awards presentation began. The Athletic Awards, pre- sented by Nola Sapienza, were the first to be honored, followed by twenty one of the Mount's finest clubs and organizations. The strings were tuned and the amps were warmed as "alias", a fine band, readied themselves for an evening of music and dance. Those choosing to ramain after the awards presentation "let their hair down" and boogied to their hearts content. The evening concluded with a last dance followed by thunderous applause. Applause for the band, Applause f for the Banquet. And Applause for the brotherhood. ^ancjuet JVjxrtl 25 T 1S$5 Dr. Earl Grollman Fall Convocation By Donna Plourde The Convocation speaker this year will be Dr. Earl Grollman, D.D.

Student Marshall, Donna Plourde along with the Class of "86 vice president Carol Seidenberg, ushered the graduates to their seats. John Awdycki, faculty marshall, headed his peers as 3500 in attendance looked on to witness over 400 excited graduates. The graduates of Mount Wachusett Community College were reminded that not only did their own perseverance get them through the two-year program, but that the support of their families and friends were also important. Astronaut Byron K. Lichtenberg encouraged the graduates to "Dare to Dream". Christopher Columbus crossed an ocean of wate, and today we stand at an "ocean of space" that awaits exploration. You'll be surprises what you can do if you reach a little bit," he said. Lichtenberg offered the graduates what he said was a three part formula for success. First, set long term goals. "What's really important is to do what you want to do." Second, break up the goal-bound path into small managable peices, resulting in one small success after another. Finally you have to get to work, and that can take sacrifice and perserverance. You need faith and confidence in your- self, but you also need support from the outside.
